Ted Cruz: When Republicans Take Control of the Senate, We Will Start Convening Hearings Focusing on the Abuse of Power From This President

'Harry Reid is the most important protector Barack Obama has because he prevents the senate from engaging in any hearings on the abuse of power, unconstitutional actions and lawlessness'

Ted Cruz is very 'optimistic' about the 2014 midterm elections because the 'path we are on isn't working and Obamacare is indefensible.'  He has plans for oversight of the executive branch should the GOP take control of the senate.

Cruz talks to Genevieve Wood of The Heritage Foundation. He tells her, 'I don't think I'm terribly conservative. The views I believe in are basic common sense principles.' Strong interview from Ted Cruz. Watch-
